Google Backup and Sync formerly known as Google Drive. A place where you can create, share, work with other users and store all your stuff.
Google Backup and Sync for Mac and Windows PC allows you to back up files to Google Drive cloud storage or Google Photos. Users can reserve and sync in the cloud not only special folders on Google Drive, but any other folder, incl. your whole system.
With Google Backup and Sync, you can:
Create and work together. Google Docs is built into Google Backup and Sync, so you can work with others in real time on documents, tables and presentations. Once you share something with others you can add comments and receive messages when others comment on something.
You have access anywhere, anytime, from any device. Mac and PC are supported.
There is a built-in search engine that allows you to search for files by file type, owner and more. Google Backup and Sync can even recognize text in a document using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. It works on an image search function.
You can start right away with free 15GB. You can expand your space to 25GB for $ 2.49 per month, up to 100GB for $ 4.99 per month and even up to 1TB for $ 49.99 per month. The good thing is that when you pay for more space your Gmail account also gets 25GB.
Google Backup and Sync allows you to attach photos from your storage and post them to Google+, and soon there will be the same feature for Gmail.
